Portuguese giants Benfica are reportedly one of many big European teams eyeing a move for West Brom starlet Quevin Castro. The interest of Benfica in Portuguese talent Castro was confirmed by Suffolk News and that a lot of teams from his native Portugal are keeping an eye on his progress with the Baggies.

Castro, 20, appeared on the radar of big Portuguese teams such as Sporting Braga and Benficaafter having him watched by their scouts during the Carabao Cup second round clash with North London giants Arsenal in August. Arsenal skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang scored three times on the way to a 6-0 away win over the Baggies. Alexandre Lacazette, Nicholas Pepe and Bukayo Saka were the other goalscorers for the Gunners as they sealed a spot in the third round of the competition as a result of the heavy win over West Brom. Castro was given a start during the game against Arsenal.

Castro became a West Brom player in the summer when he signed from the u-23 team at Chelsea. He has not been able to nail down a regular place in the West Brom starting XI since his arrival, but that has not stopped the likes of Benfica and Sporting Braga from showing their interest in him. German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund are also interested in the young midfielder. TSG Hoffenheim from the German top flight and Dutch team PSV Eindhoven are also interested in the player.

Portuguese talent Castro is yet to make an appearance for West Brom in the league though he has figured in the team for league games twice this season. However, he has made seven appearances for the West Brom u23s, netting once against Newcastle u23s. His time with the Baggies could be coming to an end after some months amidst the interest from several teams ahead of the January transfer window.
